I believe I was the root cause of the pg_stat_reset() function. The
idea at the time was that if you decide to do a round of index
optimisation, you want to be able to search for unused indexes and
heavily seq. scanned tables.
If you reset the stats you have 'clean' data to work with. For
instance, you can get 24 hours of clean stats data.
